Book Description

The Fate of Civilization Resides in a Junkyard
It's ten years after a global catastrophe that has caused the near extinction of the human race; but upon this devastation, a new race had been delivered to occupy the Earth in place of mankind, who's deathly fate had dwindled in the balance. Yet the remaining humans, fueled by anger, have slaughtered that race of beings.
This is the story, as told by one man, of the chaos that has ensued thereafter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully written 27 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A fantastic novel, written with skill and an attention to detail. A perfect read for anyone who even has a passing interest in post apocalyptic literature. The characters are extremely well created and intelligently written. The story moves at good pace and there are enough plot twists to keep you interested without becoming predictable.

Overall this a a fantastically written piece and I will definitely buy the sequel when it is released.

4.0 out of 5 stars Held my interest with a solid grip! 17 Jan. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book stood the "don't read the blurb first" test. I couldn't remember downloading the sample on my Kindle and had no clue what it was about - I just went in to see if it could keep me turning. And it did.

Here we have our main character Miles - once a mechanic and family man - who now lives in a junkyard which he calls home. He gets by surviving on the meagre rations his post-apocalyptic world has to offer. With few friends and many enemies, venturing far from home is a risk, but he does, and out there he finds more than he bargained for.

To say any more would be giving away too much, but Gabriel's Watch is bleak for the most part, leaving the reader with no sense of security even when things look like they're going well. You're always anticipating something is about to go wrong, and it often does though never in the way you predict.

You never get to relax; the author throws in enough twists to keep you on edge. Much like Cormac McCarthy's The Road, you're left, a lot of the time, in the company of the main characters.

Which brings me onto my few gripes with the story. Despite getting to know the characters, I just couldn't gel with them the way I wanted to. That's not to say I wasn't engaged, but I definitely felt a bridge there.
The author creates set ups for his character to judge others in what I assume is an attempt to get the reader to sympathise with Miles and his anger towards the antagonists. There's nothing wrong with this, but it's too easy for me. The antagonists just become fodder. Yes, I think that was my problem: glassy-eyed antagonists.

What I'm trying to say is, in a dog-eat-dog post-apocalyptic world, I would've liked more exploration of the fine lines between "good" and "evil".

5.0 out of 5 stars Damn good book 24 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Picture the Jack Reacher stories in a futuristic post apocalyptic setting- the author has a touch of Lee Child about his style. A very enjoyable story, written in the popular tough guy style, but with humour and imagination. Very nice Mr Fregger, I look forward to the rest of the trilogy.

To mark this book down to 1 star (as one reviewer did) because Amazon charge 1.99 for it is diabolical, this book should be among the popular author selections, listed at 7.99! Some people should not have a 'review' button..
